Gourmet Popsicles for Your Wedding Day

gourmet popsicles for wedding

It’s August now – can you believe it?! – and summer is in full swing here in Cali. With June gloom here, it always seem that summer starts a bit later for us than everyone else, but it is here and I’ve been loving the hot weather. I think a fun trend for summer – and even fall weddings – are yummy gourmet popsicles! I just love all the super creative flavors coming from some of the pop shops out there. Avocado basil. Thai Iced Tea. Strawberry Rosemary. Yes, please! So I thought I’d collect a list of some of the most fun popsicles shops + carts you could possibly hire for your wedding day. And be sure to check back later for a fun popsicle DIY. :)

We’ll start in Los Angeles with the Pop Shop (top photo from pop shop also). They have yummy flavors such as: amaretto white peach, avocado vanilla, lychee peachy, mexican chocolate

So, what do you guys think – anyone planning on having some gourmet popsicles at their wedding? Did I miss any great places in your city? I’d love to hear about them. :)

  9. I used Viva Pops in San Diego for our wedding last April. It was a surprise for my husband. He looooves popsicles. I had the DJ play the Popsicle Song by Jan & Dean, then my bridesmaids and I walked out with trays of popsicles. My husband was so surprised, and everyone loved the treat.
